Yummy Blackberry Cobbler

There is nothing like warm blackberry cobbler on a winter evening! I made this yummy creation for a chili cook-off at our church. I don't make chili but I am always happy to bring a dessert. The kids were disappointed it wasn't for them so I may make another for tomorrow, here is the recipe:


2 1/2 C blackberries
2/3 C sugar
1 1/2 C flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 T (1 stick) plus 2 T unsalted butter
1/2 C heavy whipped cream


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a shallow baking dish and place blackberries inside. Sprinkle with 1/3 C sugar.

In the bowl of a food processor combine flour baking powder and salt. Add stick (8T) of butter and pulse to create a lumpy mixture. Add whipping cream and pulse until dough forms. Spoon dough over blackberries.

Melt remaining 2 T butter and drizzle over mounds of dough (yum...). Sprinkle with remaining 1/3 C sugar.

Bake about 30 to 40 minutes or until dough and fruit are cooked through and dough is lightly browned.

Are berries interchangable in recipes? We have boysenberry bushes and I'm always looking for new ways to use them, and this recipe looks delicious! I'mm sorry I had to miss the activity last night and especially your cobbler!-Nicholle

yummy, I bet boysenberries would be delicious! Berries are usually interchangeable except strawberries don't work as well I hear!
